Like all DAS aircraft, this too carries additional ANA Aviation Services titles. Originally this aircraft was British Caledonian G-BEBM, delivered in 1977, and following the take-over it went to British Airways in 1988. In 1999 it was acquired by Gemini Air Cargo as N608GC and converted to freighter. DAS Air Cargo bought it in 2003 and operated it for only 3 years. In 2006 it became N811SL and was stored until acquired by Kelowna in 2008 as C-GKFA. They operated it for Purolator Courier until withdrawn from use in early 2015. A few months later it was scrapped at Hamilton, ON, Canada.
The old and the new. On Manchester Aiport's 50th anniversary BCAL's DC-10 races the BBMF Lancaster to Runway 24. The DC-10 is on the LGW-MAN-JFK schedule and the Lancaster, the prototype of which was built at Ringway in 1941, will give a short demonstration flight.
